A petition calling for a no confidence vote in British Prime Minister David Cameron has passed the key 100,000 threshold it needs to be considered for debate by MPs in Parliament.
Any motion that is submitted to Parliament's e-petition website and attracts more than 100,000 signatures in less than six months is automatically put forward to the Petition's Committee, which decides whether a parliamentary debate on the matter would be appropriate.
Petitions that reach 10,000 names receive a response from the Government, however despite passing this threshold months ago ministers have yet to respond.
The petition, which was launched by Kelly Teeboon who describes herself as a "radical feminist" and socialist, states: “We cannot afford another 5 years of Tory rule, with the recent welfare reform that will cause nothing but immense poverty in the UK.”
Mr Cameron introduced the e-petition initiative when he entered Downing Street in 2010 in a bid to boost democracy and transparency.
A similar petition calling for adebate on a vote of no confidence in Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was rejected by MPs earlier this year, despite it attracting more than 220,000 signatures.
